Welcome to 12 Things SWKLS!
Over the next 12 months, we’ll be learning a new thing or technology skill each month. For those of you that participated in 23 Things Kansas this program will be similar, but we’ll only have one topic or thing per month. All of the topics will be online on the SWKLS website.
Each lesson will be posted online on the first day of the month starting in May. You’ll have until the last day of the month at 11:59 pm central time to complete each lesson and receive 2 hours credit.
